We all know the saying, "Find a penny, pick it up. All day long, you'll have good luck." But what if you decide you want to use it in a home decorating project instead?
From a penny floor to a penny backsplash, there are virtually endless ways to use pennies to decorate objects in your house. But it's understandable why some people might be skeptical of penny projects at first. After all, looking at one penny by itself isn't exactly inspirational. Not only does it only cost one cent, it also doesn't have the prettiest design. Luckily, there are some super-creative people out there that did the hard work for us and figured out that these penny projects are nothing short of beautiful. And as this video shows, it is a lot of hard work.
As you can see, though, the results are really worth it when you catch a glimpse of the gorgeous copper penny floor. (In fact, you might even call them priceless!)
So without further ado, here are some of the most amazing penny projects we've seen on the web lately. We're willing to bet the people that own them are feeling pretty darn lucky!
It's pretty cool to know that there are exactly $12 inside this penny sink right now — literally! Considering how beautiful it is, we're sure there are plenty of people who'd be willing to cough up a lot more money than that to buy it.
It looks like we've got some competition going on in the penny projects world! One artist happened to see the penny sink online and offered up an image of a penny backsplash as an alternative. As for us, we think they're both equally beautiful!
As if this ambitious penny project wasn't impressive enough already, this clever designer created a gorgeous zig zag pattern to add an even more exciting look. We can't imagine how long that must have taken!
Inspired by the classic penny floor, this creative person decided to take it to the next level — literally — and design a penny table.
